Description:

rawimage is a kfile plugin and thumbnail image handler for RAW formats like CRW, CR2 but also for JPEG and PNG to show the important exif and makernotes and if possible allows writing of IPTC meta tags.
New in 0.4 is an optional Action menu for Konqueror to copy all known metatags from one file to another.

rawimage uses ExifTool (http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/)
and Kommander (http://kommander.kdewebdev.org)


For installation please take the README into account!!

Screenshots:
1: Konqi shows preview of a Canon RAW file correctly rotated.
2: Property dialog shows important JPEG metatags and allows creating of IPTC data (This works also for CR2 files!)
3: digikam uses its own thumbnail handler for rawfiles but they are not correctly orientated. But digiKam inherits kfile_rawimages metatag viewer at the bottom of the tooltip window

0.4 (stable) new Action menu for Konqueror to copy Metatags from one image file to another

0.3 (beta) published on kde-apps


Sorry, but rawimage is now (9/2007) deprecated. In the meantime we have exiv2 as high performance solution integrate in some KDE apps. While this package still should work, I don't use it myself any longer.

Have Fun

Hi, I can't see the CR2 preview. I get the "Raw image" Tipe in file tooltips, but I still can't see the thmbnail.

I run
./configure ; make ;make install

anthing seems ok

I checked that the magic file is ok (raw is defined before tiff), without modifying it, I have Debian, I think someone set it up.

Am I missing something?

For some reason, I'm not getting the action menu that copies metatags. Also, Konqueror will thumbnail both crw (300D) and cr2 (20D) files, but will only show metadata for crw files. For cr2 files, it doesn't show metadata in the tooltip nor in the properties dialog.

Mandriva 2006 (x86_64), KDE 3.4.2, ExifTool 5.53, (also tried ExifTool 6.00.)

(Better use eMail to get support, as I'm not here every day :)

Have you followed the README and do you patch KDEs global MIME-type file?
Patching is necessary for CR2 files

Yes, you need libperl.so somewhere in your lib-path and Encode.so,Zlib.so, MD5.so, POSIX.so, IO.so and ExifTool in your PERLLIB path. So what does 'locate libperl.so' says? In Gentoo your missing package is called 'sys-devel/libperl'.

Can rawimage handle RAW images from a Minolta Dimage A2?
The files got names like "IMG0001.MRW".

This should work. In principle this plugin support these image formats:
http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

In release 0.3 (beta) I mapped
Minolta RAW image (MRM),
Fuji RAW image (RAF),
Canon RAW (CRW, CR2),
Sigma (x3f)
by MIME type and
Nikon RAW format (nef)
by file extention
to work with 'rawimage'. But I have only testet CRW, CR2, X3F, JPEG and PNG by myself.

Minolta RAW (MRW) also by file extention.

Sooo, I downloaded a test image from digiKams RAW database (Minolta A1) and could see its works fine and this raw format also supports IPTC header writing.
